Basement area in the 4/5's bathroom and hallway will be painted this weekend as they were unable to complete last week.

An unannounced monitoring visit was conducted today. Three classes were present with a total of 36 children in ratio with direct care staff. Four emergency medications were present with two staff having current MAT certification. Medication for one child is stored in the Director's desk rather than the lock box on top of the refrigerator.
